Cause and Effect Diagram Software
The Cause and Effect diagram introduced by Kaoru Ishikawa in 1968 is a method for analyzing process dispersion. It can help you to dive into a problem and find an effective solution, identify and represent the possible causes for an effect, analyze the complex business problems and successfully solve them.
You can design your Cause and Effect diagram on a paper, but more effective way is to use specific software - ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful Cause and Effect Diagram Software. It helps you create Cause and Effect diagram known also as Fishbone diagram or Ishikawa diagram from templates and examples.
Example 1. Cause and Effect Diagram Software
As a first step of creation Cause and Effect diagram for solving a problem, you need to clearly define an effect, put it as a "head" on your diagram and draw a "fish spine" as a horizontal line. The second step is to brainstorm the possible influencing factors and causes, and represent them as "bones" on a diagram. You can construct a few levels of causes, if needed. As a brainstorming software we recommend to use the ConceptDraw MindMap application.

Identify how factors influence each other. Factors mostly influencing called “Drivers” Primarily affected factors called “Indicators”. Problem solving further focuses on changing driver factors by corrective actions. Indicator factors help establish KPI (Key Performance Indicators) to monitor changes and the effectiveness of corrective actions in resolving a problem.

While designing a conceptual data model, you should use appropriate software. For instance, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a user-friendly ER diagram tool that has a lot of samples and templates to facilitate your work. A clear entity-relationship diagram helps to define the relations between system’s components.
Software engineering is the section of a computer science engaged to design, realization, and support of complex software products. An ERD is a data modeling method that is widely applied in the software engineering practice. Commonly it is used for developing a structure of a a relational database. An entity relationship diagram is helpful for structuring and organizing databases that can be modeled using a relational structure. An entity relationship diagram is designed to depicts the interrelationships within the sets of entities which are accumulated in the database. Each entity represents a particular component of a data. Thus, ER diagrams depicts the logical structure of databases. ConceptDraw ER Diagrams solution provides software engineers with the professional tool for making entity-relationship diagrams.
